  • Small icon to differ cellphone, home & office phone numbers.

Can iCarMode remind me to save my location before exiting my car?

Yes, if you use your iPhone in a car holder with a charger, iCarMode will remind you to save the location upon disconnecting the iPhone from the charger.

iCarMode's "where did I park?" features:

  • Helps you find your parked car.
  • Reminds you to save your location before leaving the car.
  • This feature depends on location services accuracy, it will only work if your car is parked in parking areas where there is GPS reception.

Will the parking meter reminder remind me even on background?

  • Allow you to set a reminder.
  • Reminder will work even while in the background.

I get no results searching under 'Food' category? what's wrong?

It is possible that places in your current region are not listed in Google's database or not categorized. Try searching using keywords (in this case - 'coffee' should probably do the trick) or try your luck by taping the 'All' category.

iCarMode's places nearby features:

  • Allows you to search for places by category or free text.
  • Powered worldwide by Google Places (supported contries)

Why can't I set any app in the shortcut button?

Adding an App shortcut to an additional app requires the app provider to support a certain protocol to allow external calls - so we can not guarantee, but you are welcomed to tap the 'suggest a new app for the list' in the settings tab and publish a request in our facebook page, twitter or contact us by email.
